How can I find out how deep is a document in a document library? Should I simply parse the url of the file and split according to position of slash character? Or is there a better way?

You can use

file = web.GetFile("URL");

to get the file object. Then you can loop using ParentFolder until you reach the root folder of the document library and count the depth.

Kind regards Stefan
